Not really, no. You would use an intransitive verb here.

The building collapsed in the earthquake / due to the earthquake.

İt can be both transitive (what you do to something) and intransitive (what something does). You use the two forms in different situations.


You might collapse (fold up) a baby buggy, because it is designed to be collapsible to save space. But something doesn't collapse a building. İt causes the building to collapse. The building collapsed.


Transitive:
You collapse something, you fold it up.
İf you can intentionally fold something up neatly, You can collapse it.

How to Collapse a Dog Crate

Collapsible metal dog crates are a great way to have a secure place for your dog while you are traveling. They are reasonably light-weight, making them easy to carry and transport. They are also easy to clean, providing your dog with a clean, comfortable, and secure home away from home. In order to use a collapsible dog crate you simply need to know how to put it together and then how to collapse it when you are done using it.

Since it s a collapsible dog crate, the dog rate collapses - that is its ability - the simple present as a timeless fact. But the action is when you collapse it.


İntransitive.
Something collapses, it falls down.
İf it falls down by accident, it collapses. Even if something causes it, it still not a transitive verb.
The building collapsed in the earthquake.

After Mexico's 7.1-magnitude quake, some buildings have collapsed while others, often right next door, remain standing. Why?



İf the dog crate collapses while you are travelling, it squashes the dog, who hopefully escapes unharmed. That is an accident.

Thanks Thar for this explanation!!
