You need to contact the DA that issued the subpoena and explain your circumstances.
Yes, you can be subpoenaed. As Mr. Love says, your best bet is to contact whoever issued the subpoena and explain your situation. They may consider relieving you of your obligation to appear or if your testimony is important enough they may provide you with transportation / lodging. Do not simply ignore the subpoena or you may be making the trip to Pennsylvania in the back of a deputy sheriff's car. It's not real comfortable back there and often stinks!
