"might", Past Simple and the Passive
Is this sentence correct?
He might was stuck in a traffic jam.
I guess this isn't. Maybe I should write:
He might have been stuck in a traffic jam.
Could anybody help me?

(He was late) He might have been stuck in a traffic jam, (we are not sure that he was, maybe there was another reason for his lateness).

So you can see that "might was..." cannot go together.
