Usage

Traditionally, correct use is as in His lateness was due to an accident. Some people object to the use of 'due to' without a preceding noun (e.g. 'lateness') to which it refers. However, such uses as 'He was late, due to an accident' are nowadays widely regarded as acceptable. But if you prefer, you can use because of or owing to instead.
