    please correct the following sentence

    Hi All,

    Please correct the sentence, having some grammatical mistake.

    "I couldn't reach on time, why because the bus came late."




    What I am thinking is... the following might be the correct one

    "I couldn't reach on time,because the bus came late."


    Any Help would be appreciated,


    Thanks with regds,

    Hope it helps
