You need to make an appeal. If you were already on UC then you should have contacted your work coach at the time of the accident to tell them of the delay or entered it on your journal.
Its possible to appeal against the sanction and it would be better if you had details of the accident you say delayed you from getting to the appointment.

Maybe the police have a report and can confirm the accident?

Have you tried contacting CAB or Shelter if you feel you are unable to pirsue the appeal yourself.

In addition enter the complaint on your UC account and use the UC helpline.
YOU ASK FOR A MANDATORY RECONSIDERATION

Dont give in.
