A couple of points:
Pike did not lose command of the Enterprise due to his accident. That happened roughly two years into Kirk's mission, sometime around 2266. Pike had already left the Enterprise and Kirk took over command after Pike's final five-year mission and a refit of the E.
And Pike's accident was aboard an entirely different ship -- I don't think it was ever named, just that it was a J-class vessel.
