Yes. But people can make a mess with any language :)
PHP is so (relatively) easy for people to learn, therefore there are a
lot of people with enough knowledge to shoot themselves accidentally.
Many PHP programmers haven't had any formal training and tend to take a
copy+paste approach to programming with poor structure/testing/design -
it works, and they're happy... but it doesn't scale and isn't easy for
others to maintain.
