Zufall?

"accident" can be "Zufall" but "Zufall" is neutral, whereas "accident" usually has a negative connotation.

To point this out further, 'coincidence' fits 'Zufall' better. Zufall is not only neutral, but sometimes even positive, at least more often than negative.

You can also say "böser Zufall" to show that it was a negative coincidence but I don't think it is used much.
