Without seeing the nature of the accident damage it will be hard to determine the cause of the door issue. A body panel pushed into the door, like a fender, may be able to be repositioned to restore door operation. The door latch of the suspect door may have been damaged from the impact causing the door issue. Or in a worst case scenario, the unibody of the vehicle may have been distorted from the impact, causing the door to become jammed in its door frame, which may require the vehicle to be pulled to correct the distorted door frame. You may want to enlist the of a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, to assess the door issue and recommend a repair or make a repair to correct the door issue.
