yes, it happens. One of the reasons is that buildings don't fly ;-)
They are standing on the ground, exercising pressure on the ground, and if
you remove the pressure (=building) at one side it might happen (depending
on the force and the ground) that part of the ground below an adjacent
building "moves" into this now "pressure-free" area. It happens almost
always, but it depends how much it does if the other buildings still remain
or collapse...
Still I wouldn't say that in these cases the building couldn't stand on its
own, it is a technical error of not having stabilzed the ground below
