The reason he's never been in a car accident is because he adheres to the traffic rules, not because he's a F1 driver.
Is the above sentence correct? Can 'reason' be used together with 'because'?
Thanks in advance.
No, the sentence is not grammatically correct. You should say: "The reason.....is that...."
However, there is another thing you should pay attention to. You cannot be in a car accident, you can have one.
bhaisabab and fighting spirit are right, but I regret that you will hear the reason ... is because and the reason why... from many native speakers today.
I agree with bhaisabab; you can be (involved) in a car accident.
